    Every member of our team is:

    • A researcher – we conduct qualitative and quantitative research to understand how audiences respond to different ways of talking about something and why
    • A writer – we help clients engage and persuade their audiences by writing in a way that resonates and compels them to act
    • A strategist – anyone can find out what an audience thinks; we bring an analytic and strategic approach to messaging.
    • A consultant – we constantly imagine the world through the eyes of someone else: our clients’, what are their challenges externally and internally and how can we help them? Our clients’ audiences: how do we factor “their truth” into effective messaging?
    • Able to express a point of view. We don’t really care what it is, as long as you have one, and can communicate it persuasively.
    • A compelling speaker. When we walk into a room, we want people to remember we were there. We lead with substance, but you also need a demonstrable ability to present well.

    Our firm is guided by the simple idea that it’s not what you SAY that matters, it’s what they HEAR. We use research to advise our clients what to say, what not to say, and why it matters. We passionately believe that for PR, marketing and advocacy efforts to be successful, they must have the right words, phrases and framing. Though small, we have a large impact. We work on major communication challenges for Fortune 500 companies, trade associations, non-profits, and public policy groups around the country and the world.
